Is there ever a real balance? Or is life just a constant catch up? I don’t know, I’d like to think I could find a balance. I have so many projects going on right now, my head is going in fifty different directions, and, oh yeah, there will be a baby here in no time. The baby is my (our) first priority, then what???!
I’ve always been a pretty organized (OCD) type of person, so this latest “scatter-brain” thing is throwing me off. I’m trying hard to stay organized, but the more organized I try to stay, the more disorganized I get. I don’t know how some of you people do it, I commend you. Big time! Especially the mamas who make, create, and sell homemade things. Do you stay up until midnight? Probably.
I’m trying to find a balance. I’m happiest in life when things are more mellow, as opposed to chaotic. I used to be the complete opposite. The more rushed the better. Not so much anymore. But, with all of my “things” going on mellow isn’t exactly the word that is happening right now.
One of the reasons I loved being back home a couple weeks ago was the relaxation part. I have a good friend who I just love being around because of her energy. She probably has ninety things a day going on, yet she is always calm, and never seems to be rushing. She gets pulled in fifty different directions, and still remains completely balanced. I’ve asked her before, how she does it. Her answer was simple. “I have to stay calm for myself and others around me.” Of course my type A personality wondered “hmmm, if only it was that easy”. But, I honestly believe it’s all practice.
So, here I am, starting my practice. The practice of patience, tolerance, and slowing down. It has to be more healthy, right?! I’m not a runner, I’m not a gym person, but I enjoy eating healthy, and practicing holistic rituals. Oh yeah, and all of you avid runners, good for you, I bet that helps with mega stress, but never going to be there, and never going to try. Sorry. I only wish.
Cheers to finding a balance in life! God-willing it happens. Soon. Ha!
Oh, and here is an interview with Sarah Jessica Parker. I love her. She nails it, and so flawlessly. I mean…
